I'm in need of some help. I have a 2006 Chevy Cobalt LT, and I was leaving to go to work, when I started my car it wouldn't move. Got out, looked under the car and saw a literal stream of transmission fluid (reddish-brown) coming from underneath the car. It eventually slowed to a drip, so I added more fluid, but when I went to drive it again (I know, bad idea), the drip turned to a stream again. I'm by no means an expert when it comes to cars, so I was wondering if anyone had any ideas? My first thought was to replace the transmission pan seal, but I'm not sure that's the origin of the leak. I believe I attached an image below. Is there any hope? I know enough about maintenance/repair from my brother to attempt a fix myself, if at all possible.
Did you hit something and crack your transmission pan? It's only cast aluminum.

No, I haven't hit anything. Not sure how to attach images, (I guess the one above didn't attach?) It doesn't look like the pan is cracked either. It almost looks like its draining from a bolt near the pan. https://imgur.com/x1Sauko
